Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Pulisic, Chandler, Zelalem and more


Several U.S. Men’s National Team regulars face major matchups over the weekend while a few familiar faces could make their debut with new clubs.

The action is headlined by those scattered throughout the Bundesliga as several Americans collide while others face big tests. Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund face off with fellow contenders RB Leipzig on Saturday, while John Brooks and Alfredo Morales collide that same day. On Sunday, Terrence Boyd and Darmstadt face Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt as the former looks to make his second appearance for his new club.

Boyd’s debut came last week, but several others could see their first action with a new team this weekend. Gedion Zelalem joins VVV Venlo for the first time on Friday for a match against De Graafschap while Gbloy Ariyibi and Nottingham Forest take on Aston Villa.

Elsewhere, Emerson Hyndman looks to continue his recent goalscoring form against Ross County and the American contingent at Tijuana looks to fire past William Yarbrough and Leon.
